Venues Of Note

 
Venues in Stockholm is a complicated matter. We’ve really been lacking good stages for a while. Too many rules and regulations are part of the reason, I think. I like a good black club better than anything else, but here are some venues that I kind of like:

The legendary theatre where Ingmar Bergman (among many other great people) made his mark. It’s such a beautiful stage, and because of the whole aura and atmosphere of the building, you feel like there is some extra magic added in every performance.

Very classic-looking venue, but I kind of like the size of it—not too small and not too big. On a good summer’s night, you can spend the hours before or after a show on the nice veranda overlooking a beautiful view of Stockholm.
 


Strand

Looks and feels very much like a youth club, but here you can catch a lot of good bookings. The sound isn’t perfect, but if the vibe’s right it’s not too bad a place to hang out.
